Motion text

That this House notes with sadness the unavoidable and sensible postponement of the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Ceredigion until 2022 due to the covid-19 pandemic; expresses deep concern about the incredibly difficult financial situation this poses for the festival organisers and for staff who are now at risk of redundancy; asks the UK Government what financial assistance it can provide to help support Wales’ premiere cultural festival; commends the ongoing work of the Eisteddfod AmGen for providing alternative ways for people across Wales to celebrate the Eisteddfod during the pandemic; and looks forward to people coming together in-person for Eisteddfod 2022.
